Ghanaian singer and songwriter, Gladstorm Kwabena Akwaboah Jnr., has detailed why he stayed hungry for a year.
He revealed what he did to chase his dream as an artiste.
Speaking with Valerie Danso on the GTV Breakfast Show, Akwaboah disclosed that he stayed hungry for a year, aiming to start his musical career.
Before that, the Ghanaian artiste indicated that he was an instrumentalist, but he was not paid well.
“Being an instrumentalist, playing for people and they will give you small money so I said this job I no go do again. I literary came home with nothing and it was not as if I had some money somewhere to spend. I stayed behind to write my songs. When people call me for shows as an instrumentalist I say no, I want to become an artiste and stayed hungry for like a year,” Akwaboah opened up.
Following his decision, the well-known musician stated that it took seven years to build a solid brand.
He further advised budding artistes not to chase trends, stressing that taking time to work on their crafts will help them.
